Mentioned may be made that, student of various educational institution in and around Kanggui welcome His Excellency holding a placard written , “Developed Sadar Hills Developed India”, “Read our minds to know our wants”, “Implemented B.R.G.F. in Sadar Hills”, “Make us study in peace”, “Insurgency No…No…!”, “Depute D.C. in Sadar Hills”.

“Senapati district is the only district to have two Autonomous District Council in Manipur as well as in the entire North East India that according to my point of view, theoretically development should be doubled”, added His Excellency, the Governor of Manipur before toting up his concern and aware of the demand of devolution of more power to District Council and the so called 1971 Acts respectively.

“It vital on the part of the three level Govt. viz. Centre Govt., State Govt. and the District Govt. to ensured the Acts and Laws under the Indian Constitution were implemented effectively” maintained His Excellency adding that as far as money is concern, we are having sufficient money from the Govt. of India said His Excellency adding that the duty of the functionaries and the people is to utilize the money in proper manner.

While I have noted all your demands and keep in my heart always to remember to ensure for socio-political and economic development of the area and its people I do have a big dream on the part of the district administrator and the voluntary organization also works for the same asserted His Excellency, the Governor of Manipur Dr. Ashwani Kumar.

His Excellency, the Governor of Manipur spent at least one and half hours interacting with the Local MLA, Chairman and Members of Autonomous District Council Sadar Hills and other District Level Officers along with the Kuki Inpi (House of the Kukis), Kuki Women Union including Kanggui Town Committee, Kanggui Women Welfare Organization, Kanggui Youth Union and other civil bodies.

The ADC Sadar Hills Chairman continued that while Chairman of other District Council in NE India and other states were made and vested the power of Chairman DRDA and local Planning Commission/Committee the Chairman of District Council in Manipur remains the only Chairman of District Council without the power of Chairman DRDA and local Planning Commission/Committee.

The intentional discrimination compelled the District Council in the Hill Areas of Manipur to ultimately demand complete implementation of Manipur (Hill Areas) Autonomous District Council Acts, 1971 with complete devolution of power, separate head, separate demand and other facilities enshrine in the Acts but that legitimate demand too has been ingored repeated and remain futile till today stressed Haokholal Hangshing.

While drawing the attention of His Excellency the Chairman ADC Sadar Hills pointed out that the 1989 Extraordinary Gazette of Manipur Government vested the power of Deputy Commissioner to Addl. Deputy Commissioner, Sadar Hills but till then the power and function of Addl. DC remain something like a mere SDO/BDO.

He further pointed out that Sadar Hills being not a full-fledged district all development programs, infrastructures and other amenities from the Centre Govt. as well as State Govt. jump over to other district evading Sadar Hills which make the district development far behind other district of Manipur.

The Chairman appeals the Governor of Manipur to avail the facilities of Backward Rural Grant Fund (BRGF) to Senapati District and make functional the Addl. DC as Deputy Commissioner with complete devolution of power and function at the earliest before adding that Autonomous District Council Sadar Hills has been functioning effectively like other Autonomous District Council of the state with components of all departments.

“We have Autonomous District Council after districthood has been granted by the Govt. of India in the year 1971. But where is the Deputy Commissioner of Sadar Hills?” asked Kuki Inpi Sadar Hills President Seimang Khongsai who repeatedly requested His Excellency, “Please Sir, Do not Forget, do not forget, do not forget and always keep in mind our big legitimate question”.

He also submitted a joint memorandum of Kuki Inpi Sadar Hills, Kuki Women Union and Sadar Hills Chiefs Association demanding full-fledged district with Deputy Commissioner, upgrading CHC, Kanggui to 50-bedded hospital and PHC Saikul and Gamnom-Sapormeina to CHC, establishing one Polytechnic Institution and ITI as well as sanctioning construction of one Indoor Stadium at Kanggui.

In the meantime, Kuki Students’ Organization Sadar Hills on behalf of the student communities under Autonomous District Council Sadar Hills demand deputation Deputy Commissioner for Sadar Hills at Kanggui district headquarter at the earliest to throw away the 42 years of discrimination and humiliation of the people of Sadar Hills.
